During what can only be described as unprecedented times, it is safe to say that we are all struggling to understand and grasp the current situation. For our children, the confusion and anxiety over what is going on around them will naturally grow as time goes on and especially as we are unable to give them definitive answers over when or if we will return to normal.
To support our children in school we would usually use social stories that help them make sense of concepts and situations that they otherwise may not be familiar with. Although your child may not need to access all or any of these social stories, we have compiled a resource bank that may be of support for you throughout the period of school closure. Please do get in touch if you need further support or guidance.
